The Master Builder

By Henrik Ibsen

‘It is the clarity of the piece, allowing its myriad of moral dilemmas to surface easily, which is its main strength.’ The Stage

A brilliant new translation by Kenneth McLeish.

Master Builder Solness is locked in a loveless marriage and is terrified that the young rising generation will come knocking at the door.  When the beautiful and mysterious Hilde Wangel comes to claim her kingdom, love and catastrophe loom.
